Twelve plus one

Tiny Human is twelve plus one,

His Mummy is a nervous wreck.

She is a ringer for Cleopatra

So deep in de-Nile she went.

 

Tiny Human is twelve plus one,

Mummy is not ready yet.

For teenage years, and teenage tears

We grownups tried hard to forget.

 

Tiny Human is twelve plus one,

Oh how the time has flown.

Just yesterday you were a grand newborn

Tomorrow you will tower o’er me.

 

Tiny Human is twelve plus one,

What parent is ever prepared?

They are not, you will find, real superheroes,

Except in the eyes of their child.

 

Happy Birthday my Tiny Human,

My little love.

I may not be ready, but…

Your Mom is here.

  1. Mommy will be just fine. Mommy needs to realize that she’s done a good job so far – and by damn she’ll continue to do so come what may.

    Peace, dear – all of you will survive this.
